The No.1 Man/Machine Interface for SloMo. Live Editing. Multicam Replay
This software and the related production servers allow broadcasters to record, control and play media. Originally developed for sports production, the XT series video servers arenow present in nearly each OB van in all big sportive events as FIFA World Cup, IFAF World Cup, MotoGP and Olympic Games, world championships and is actually used in the biggest studio broadcasts such as NBC, France 2, CCTV and many others.
Combined with the remote controller, it allows users to instantly make clips of ingested media, review multiple camera angles and replay them at any speed between -400 and + 400% at a very high quality (UHD, HD or SD).
This software and its widely known controller have become a standard, as part of each OB Van in sport productions. The LSM name has been adopted as the name of the person in charge of making the slow-motion replays (LSM Operator) in countries other than the United State. Today, there are approximately 5,000 LSM operators in the world.
In the whole world but espscially in the United States, Germany and Norway, the LSM is commonly referred to as an EVS, and operators as EVS operators, despite the fact that EVS manufactures other products besides the LSM.
EVS is globally recognized as the technology leader for live video production. The company introduced Live Slow Motion replay in 1994, and has continued to build on its reputation for quality and reliability with solutions that enhance live sports, entertainment and news content. Innovations – such as the C-Cast multimedia platform and DYVI IT-based switcher – are raising the bar for live production enrichment, management and distribution. Broadcasters, rights owners, producers and venues alike use EVS to maximize the value of their productions and increase revenue streams.
